Everyone makes mistakes in life, I know I have. At least for me, it can be difficult moving past these mistakes and accepting them as lessons. One of my best friends loves the quote, "the minute you stop making mistakes is the minute you stop learning". I think it is so true. Mistakes and bad experiences are always difficult, but they only make us stronger and more able to deal with life's future obstacles that come our way. In order to live our most fulfilling lives, we must own up to our past and stop having shame for things we may want to take back and re-do. Take a breath, accept what's happened, and move on.
